Florida routs Arkansas 75-43 in Gainesville

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Kenny Boynton scored 20 points, Vernon

Macklin added 13 and Florida rolled Arkansas 75-43 Saturday night

for the team's seventh win in eight games.

The Gators dominated from the opening tip, scoring at will in

the paint while building a double-digit lead and never letting up.

Alex Tyus chipped in 13 points and seven rebounds for Florida,

and Chandler Parsons added a career-high 15 boards.

The Gators (15-4, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) followed their

best opening half of the season with an equally impressive

performance after the break. They turned a 39-17 halftime lead into

a 30-point beatdown with more than 11 minutes remaining and coasted

from there.

Coach John Pelphrey called timeouts and subbed personnel, but

nothing worked as the Razorbacks (12-6, 2-3) dropped consecutive

games for the first time this season.
